Currently ranked the most popular hashtag on Instagram.
As the popular song from half a decade ago says... "What the world needs now is love sweet love."
Honestly, I'm not sure there's ever been a time we need it more.
So much division. So much isolation. Impatience and misunderstanding turning to anger turning to violence.
Please. This weekend. Right now. Do something for me. Please.
Show some love to someone not expecting it.
Not to gain favor. Or to sell something. Or to get your favorite candidate elected.
Do it, JUST BECAUSE...
Maybe it's a long overdue phone call. Dropping off some cookies at someone's doorstep, or a small bunch of flowers. Or, write and send a handwritten note to show up in their mailbox - their old fashioned US Mail box - one day next week.
So so many are crying out for love.
"What the world needs now is love, sweet, love... no not just for some, but for everyone." Jackie DeShannon, 1965.
Said another way, "Love one another." (NIV John 13:34)
